While not part of the QGIS app, one could use this PyQGIS snippet to do so
(tested quickly on macOS 10.11.6 under QGIS 2.14) from the PyQGIS console:

from PyQt4.QtGui import *
QApplication.clipboard().setImage(QImage(QPixmap.grabWidget(iface.mapCanvas())))

This avoids having to re-render the QGraphicsView (QgsMapCanvas) to a paint
device, like an image. Code can be wrapped in a plugin, then have some key
bindings applied (would need some more PyQt).
